The St Francis Messenger
The Quarterly Newsletter for Compass Education Ltd Edition 14 – Summer 2010
Welcome to yet another issue of the St. Francis Messenger. We cannot believe that we are now on issue 14. It seems like yesterday that someone had the idea of a regular newsletter for our students. Since then, it seems have gone from strength to strength with copies being read world – wide! We are slowly finding that we have more and more interesting articles and we could end up with a rather large newsletter. If you are reading this on-line, don’t forget we can send you a printed copy. Just give the office a call or send us an e-mail and your newsletter will be put in the post within 48 hours. The new Animal Nursing Assistant course is proving very popular and work is progressing on achieving the Lantra Awards accreditation. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the VAT rise in the New Year will affect the course prices so there would be an advantage in registering or completing any payments due before the end of the
BVNA CPD Partners
Those of you who are students will know how much work is done by the tutors and office staff to ensure that our students get an excel- lent service. Some of the work we do on behalf of our students is not always obvious. Recently we have been able to secure a CPD partnership with the BVNA. We are very proud of this achievement on a Compass level and also from a student professional level. What this means is that our courses are being accepted by yet another well- respected and established national, professional organisa- tion. Our courses can now be used by vet nurses to satisfy their annual commitment to professional development.

Maned Wolf Adoption In the last edition we reported on the donation to the Galloway Wildlife Conservation Park on behalf of Compass students and have subsequently re- ceived this certifi- cate of adoption for their Maned Wolf. Maned Wolves are an endangered spe- cies due to habitat loss in their native S America. This one was born at the park and is doing really well.
Wendy Knights We regret to report that one of our very popu- lar tutors has recently been very ill. Wendy Knights has been tutoring Compass students for many years now and is well qualified both academically and practically and holds qualifi- cations for dealing with students with learning difficulties. After a spell in hospital, Wendy is now recovering at home but as yet is unable to tutor many students. We all wish Wendy well and hope that soon enough she will be able to continue her excellent work with Com- pass.
